In a partnership with developers Devolver Digital and General Arcade, 3D Realms has  finally brought its landmark game Duke Nukem 3D to Steam.

The game is priced at $9.99 but is currently being sold at a 10 percent discount, bringing the price down to just $8.99. The offer will end March 27.

This isn’t just any regular release of Duke Nukem 3D. Called Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition, this iteration of the groundbreaking 3D first-person shooter is a diverse compilation. It is comprised not only of the original 1996 release of the game but also the updated version, Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition. It also includes three officially licensed expansions: Duke Caribbean: Life’s A Beach, Duke: Nuclear Winter and Duke It Out In D.C.

All games in the pack have been developed to run on modern day Windows and Mac operating systems. They have also been painstakingly enhanced visual with new and polished OpenGL visuals. Other additions to the Steam version include support for SteamPlay and Steam Cloud. Steam-based achievements can now also be earned while playing the game.

Released in 1996, Duke Nukem 3D is the third game in the Duke Nukem franchise. Players control the titular hero fighting off an alien invasion on his home of Neo Los Angeles. With its use of then-groundbreaking 3D graphics, action packed gameplay, high interactivity and mature wisecracking humor, it quickly won over gamers. Today it is considered by many to be one of the the most prolific first-person shooters ever made and one of the reasons for the genre’s popularity and evolution.

“There is a whole generation of fans that may have heard of Duke Nukem 3D but never actually played it so it’s exciting to add a bit of polish to the game and the expansions for the first release on Steam,” said Scott Miller, founding partner at 3D Realms. “General Arcade has worked close with our team and hardcore fans across the world to make sure the Megaton Edition lives up to the Duke Nukem legacy.”

General Arcade and Devolver Digital have promised to continually update Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition with new features to ensure continued enjoyment. Features promised to be added in the future are online multiplayer through Steamworks, full support for Linux operating systems and even more expansion packs to extend to game’s virtual carnage.
